Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Stein on Writing is the best book on writing that I have read…The tips, shortcuts, and plentiful examples of good writing versus bad cannot fail to help every writer, no matter at what stage he finds himself.” Barnaby Conrad, New York Times bestselling author
“Offers a banquet of savvy advice...Stein aims not to help his readers wrestle with writerly anguish; rather, he gets on the page, citing examples from writers famous and fledgling, closely analyzing first sentences, creation of character, plotting, and dialogue.” Publishers Weekly
“This book can jump-start anyone’s creativity. Highly recommended for all writing collections.” Library Journal
“[Stein] went over my manuscript with an ifallible eye for the soft spots in my prose, giving me one of the best editorial readinds I've ever had.” Lionel Trilling, author of The Middle of the Journey
“A practical guide for writers by a master editor who has worked with such figures as Dylan Thomas, James Baldwin, and Jack Higgins covers character development, speeding up the pace, applying the Actors Studio Method, and creating suspense and tension.” Ingram
